Bermuda’s Teresa Perozzi and her opponent Kali Reis were officially weighed in ahead of their upcoming IBA Women’s Middleweight Championship bout yesterday [November 20], with the match set to take place tonight [Nov 21] at the Fairmont Southampton.

Referee Steve Smoger said, “This is a vacant title for the IBA Women’s Middleweight championship of the world, it’s a very, very prestigious belt.”

“To my left and to my right are two of the finest female fighters in the world; top ten, if not top five. This is a world-class event. I’m very, very happy and excited to be a part of it.”

“I’ve seen this young lady fight and I’ve seen her associate fight. They come ready to go. This is again a world-class event and I’m totally honored to be a part of it. I thank Bermuda for having me back.”

Teresa Perozzi said, “I feel great. I’m just glad it’s finally here. Everyone knows we had a big fight scheduled last year in November and it was cancelled, so this has just been my focus every day to get back in shape and be here.

“I’m grateful Kali could make it. I know she’s coming ready to fight; I don’t take anyone lightly. I’m just really thankful. I’m thankful Bermuda is coming out.”
